Storm and War Conditions
' February Issue
An unusual combination of storm and
emergency war restrictions forced us to
do something never before necessary in
the thirty-three years' history of publishing
Scouting, — to be all ready to publish
an issue and then not do so.
The February issue was all ready to go
to press on January 15th — 400,000 covers
had been printed and the plates for the
inside pages were on the press when the
printer notified us that the paper supply
had not arrived (we are not permitted to
have a reserve supply on hand in war
times). A quick check with the mill in
Northern New York State revealed that
the carload of paper had been on the way
for some days but that was all we could
learn. It was snowbound with many thou-
sands of freight cars in that area and
remained so for precious days. When it
was finally possible for our carload to roll
on its way, the Government decreed,
"Nothing moves but military freight."
So, because of weather (the worst this
area has had in years) and the war, we
were unable to mail the February issue in
time for it to help you with your March
plans. The best we could do was to develop
this special combined 32-page issue con-
taining as much as possible of the material
scheduled for printing in the two numbers.
We are sorry this happened but we are
fortunate to have had no more interrup-
tion of publication than we have faced so
far. It has only been because of the great-
est effort on the part of the paper mills,
the printer and the Post Office that we
have been able to keep as near to normal
schedule as we have in recent months. We
will all be happy when we can resume not
only normal schedule of delivery, but the
normal size of the magazine.
